Parks and Recreation Commission Meeting Preamble

READ THE AGENDA
Thursday night, September 25, 2014, the Costa Mesa Parks and Recreation Commission will hold its monthly meeting to do the City's business, so to speak.  You can read the agenda HERE.

A QUICK PEEK...
Just to give you an idea of what they will consider at this meeting, I'll skip quickly through the agenda items and provide links to each so you can review them in greater detail if you wish.  I'll be at the meeting and will provide you a report tomorrow evening some time.

In order of the schedule, the commission will consider the following:

MEMORIAL TREE AND PLAQUE
Item 6a,  HERE, which is part of the Consent Calendar, is the request for a memorial plaque and tree planting at TeWinkle Park.

TREE REMOVAL REQUEST
Item 9a, HERE, is a tree removal request at 2016 Arnold Street.  The tree is on private property so the staff is recommending denial of the request.

PARK SIGNAGE AND DISTRICTS DISCUSSION
Item 9b, HERE, is probably the most interesting item on the agenda.  This is the discussion of City Park Signage and  Establishment of Park Districts floated by Chairman Byron de Arakal recently.  Personally, I'm not convinced this is the way to go, but I'm interested in hearing the debate.

DOG PARK EXIT
Item 9c, HERE, is the proposed donation of a secondary exit to the large dog area of the Bark Park.

19TH STREET MONUMENT SIGN
Item 9d, HERE, is the proposal for the East 19th Street Monument Sign that would be part of the proposed traffic calming plan for that stretch of 19th Street from the City border at Irvine Avenue to Fullerton Street, near the intersection with Newport Boulevard.  This is my part of town and I'm going to be very curious to see how a monument sign will fit in what is going to be a narrowed portion of 19th Street at Irvine Avenue. 

BRISTOL STREET IMPROVEMENTS
Item 9e, HERE, is the Bristol Street Median Project, which consists of improvements along that street from Baker Street and Newport Boulevard and includes some enhancements between Baker Street and Randolph Avenue.  The staff report shows plant palettes and the details of this nearly half-million dollar project, which is being completed using Highway Safety Improvement Program (HISP) grant funding.
